Recently bought myself a rubbish 1997 Ford Ka for £300 - but I love it already!
While the tyres were legal enough to get through a recent MOT, I've found they really don't have the wet weather performance I'm looking for at this time of year.
A friend of mine has some old alloys that he's willing to give to me cheap. Trouble is they're not the same size as my steel wheels. I currently have 165/65/13 tyres, but the new wheels would be 175/70/13.
Now while that's not a huge difference, and the actual diameter of the tyres isn't much different (about 2cm) and the width is only a centimetre different, I was just wondering if anyone can clarify that these wheels will be ok for my car.
I just need to know:
Will they fit?
Will they enhance/compromise driving in any way?
Are they safe?
Thanks for helping out a total noob.
OH by the way I should've made it clear. My mate has some alloys with nearly new tyres that he's willing to give me cheap!
